Now that I’ve got the 1980 CM200T in a “good spot”, I’m going start working on some of the “B” items. With the exception of a few chips, the paint is in very good shape; can’t justify a paint job at this point. I’d really like to find a quality touch up product. First step is to determine my color. I’ve been unable to find a paint code under the seat or inside one of the side covers. Any suggestions as to where to find this? Also, once I figure out the color, any recommendations on a vendor?

Given the choices, I’ll call it red. Were those the only options in ‘80?

You have the Candy Presto Red. Go to Marbles Motors (marblesmotors.com). He specializes in these paints.
Note that the candy colors are a royal PITA to apply.

Marbles didn’t have the color on file, however I did find it at RS Motorbike Paint. Anyone have experience with these guys? Also, any advise on applying this material; base color, color, top coat.
